Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja said his salary is zero despite holding the top job in Pakistan cricket.

He added that he has not taken any “unnecessary perks” and revealed that he has spent “just 2.5 lac rupees on my official tours”.

“My salary as PCB chairman is zero and I have not taken any unnecessary perks so far as the chairman. I have not taken an entertainment allowance and spent just 2.5 lac rupees on my official tours as of yet,” he said while speaking to National Assembly Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

Ramiz also made it clear that he has never taken his wife or any of his relatives on tours with him.

“I am here to work for cricket’s promotion. Neither I took my wife on any official tour nor benefitted any of my relatives,” he said.

The former captain further said that his family didn’t want him to be PCB chairman as they knew he would make no money.

“My family did not want me to accept the PCB Chairmanship. They knew [the] PCB chairman gets nothing except being called out every time,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan team fell short in their hopes of winning the Asia Cup as Sri Lanka beat them by 23 runs in the final.
